Legacy

 

Curious,

this day,

this life,

and where it leads.

So many

unforeseen

possibilities.

Roads that go,

graced by light,

divinity.

Thrones of gold

offered by

my enemies.

 

I can hear the wind blow.

I can feel the storm surge,

making me second guess

my plan

to capture it with words.

Thinking I

should get a net

and maybe then

I won’t forget them

before they get to my pen.

 

My mind’s a strange place,

but I remain

curious.

All of this describes to me

a world beyond

what I can see,

pages more to read.

 

Even though

I am afraid

of losing what I’ve made,

who I love,

so I tell them every day.

 

These words

are temporary,

but with luck

they’ll outlast me.

No one to pass

my life on to,

so, I

will give it for free.

Maybe I can pass along

my curiosity.

Maybe,

someone will read

my words

and wonder after me.
